Ring cycle

Harry Potter ain’t got nothin’ on J. R. R. Tolkien’s cult literary classic of good vs. evil, The Lord of the Rings. And if you dare need proof, just check out www.lordoftherings.net, the Web site for the New Line Cinema trilogy of films, to be produced this year. The first film, The Fellowship of the Ring, is scheduled for release in theaters nationwide on Dec. 19, 2001. The official Web site is extravagant: Visitors can choose from spin-off sites divulging info on the upcoming flicks, or enter into the epic adventurous history that set a supremely high standard for fantasy film of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Much like the uproar caused by the Star Wars prequel, it is a fact that some faithful Lord devotees have — and will again — pay $7.50 to show up for the movie 13 Days … just to see 13 seconds of the trailer for The Lord Of the Rings.
